UPDATE: Selling LOTS of DevWear and DevGearTime for the first real update. Sorry that I keep spamming this journal, but I am still trying to make sales. So please deal with me for a while longer.
Its been a while since I launched this, and its been an overwhelming response. I am so thrilled and very very thankful. Everyone who has purchased devwear and/or helped to promote my sales are now officially super awesome and wonderful people in my life. Thanks to everyone, I'm proud to say the following.
I have paid off the remainder of my car insurance, saving myself $125 a month. I was debating for the first several days on paying down my credit card, but then I realized my balance for my insurance was low enough where I could pay it off, and I still had some money to pay off my card.
Any money that I get from this point on will go towards helping to pay off my Discover card. Credit cards are such double edge swords. It was what helped me through the worst of everything, but now I need to pay it down. I

Daily Deviations UpdateHappy Monday Morning
I started this morning by signing something "Moonbam13" so either this typo means I need more coffee, or this week is going to be BAMTASTIC!
I'm rooting for the latter
I wanted to post a quick update on changes to Daily Deviations. It is important to note that these changes have not been hard-coded so my team is manually following these new guidelines. This means that errors can and likely will occur until the coding is complete, your patience and understanding is appreciated
The following guideline changes are in effect:
The 3-month rule is now the 6-month rule, meaning that it must be at least 6-months since the last time an artist received a daily deviation. (This was an overwhelmingly popular suggestion from the community and I agree, it's a good one!)
Daily deviation selectors may only select one daily deviation per day maximum. This has been put in place to focus on Quality vs Quantity.
The Team-Up Art ContestCheck out my other contest, the Star of Destiny/Snow Cosplay Contest
This contest is over. It has been since the end of summer. Any groups that list this contest as ending in January 2013 have listed this incorrectly. The cosplay contest, link above, ends in January 2013
The Star of Destiny Team-Up Art Contest
What Is It
A contest where contestants draw a Star of Destiny character and a character of their choosing (Based on the limitations given below) and swap their outfits.
How To Enter
To enter, contestants must choose a character from Star of Destiny (all characters, including those who are not introduced yet but have artwork for them, may be used), then they must choose a character from any other popular source that is in some way similar to the character they chose from Star of Destiny (Keep in mind, the similarity or connection i
The Commissioner's Guide to Proper Etiquette tips & tricks to ensure that the artist does not hate your guts after you commission them
Take the time to realize this is aimed at commissioners, not artists. Yes, there are a ton of things artists fuck up on, trust me, I know. Oh, I know. However that alone could be a whole 'nother journal- which I might go ahead and do because I've had frustrating experiences with artists. When I'm talking about bad commissioners here though, I'm talking about the worst of the worst. Why on earth do I think a timid question 3 weeks after your commission was accepted asking about how it's going is "badgering"?
These are things I've witnessed, I'm talking about the horribly entitled, belittling, superior attitude commissioners! The ones that send you a billion notes and PMs asking when their art will be done, and rudely, when it's only been 3 days! So no, I'm not saying artists should step all over you- because trust me, some will. And by god, they sh

Regarding Referencing and Permission IssuesHello everyone, there's something that has been bothering me as of late.
Sad to say I'm used to art thieves now, but I am slowly starting to encounter a different type of theft, one that isn't just plainly uploading a piece of artwork that is not theirs.
I've been getting notices more and more from helpful deviants regarding people using my artwork, mostly my chibi, to make bases, or to trace over directly and claim the artwork as theirs.
That is considered theft.
Regarding the bases, it is not theft if you use a base with permission, nor if you create a base from scratch with an original drawing. However it is theft if you take an image from the internet, trace over it directly, then upload it and claim it as your own. I'm not sure what the schools are teaching these days regarding proper citation, but "google images" or "zerochan" or simply "pixiv/tumblr/danbooru/internet" are NOT PROPER SOURCES.
The only artists I've known who thinks imitation means flattery are

Devious Journal EntryJust a little note...
When you see an artist you like and you are trying to figure his work out... the question that gets asked a lot is" How did you do it?"
What software did you use to make this effect?
What is your technique?
These are questions that won't get you anywhere. It's like asking for the fish.
A question you should probably ask is WHY did you do this?.. WHAT were you thinking?
When you ask this question, you are thinking about the principles of fishing, and not just about catching A fish.
If you wonder why, then you won't be stuck with the HOW.. you will most probably create your own "HOW", your own method of putting your WHY into existence..and this is what will really make you unique.
Once again.. this is just my take on things.
